Default My formal night picture poll

Hi all the photographer on the Crown Princess got the idea of what we meant when we asked for "silly" pictures. He came up with some of the ideas for the pictures below. I love these photos, they are more true to my hubby and my personality. But the poll in question is which is your favorite.

A. Hubby on my head.

B. Marry me babe.

C. You got me in a stranglehold

D. Shock and awe

Kat those pictures are all great. You guys look so good in all of them. I really had a hard time picking one.


I picked A because you look absolutely stunning in that one.

I have to tell you I love them al,l but A is my choice..I love the fact that these pictures show the true, you..I bet the people around you were quite started at these "shenanigans!"..I am not a lover of the traditional posed pictures on cruise ships, How many can you have,and the cost, oh my!! You both get an A+ in my book, for originality!

TM thank you that is sweet of you to say.

Trip I get the feeling the photographers are bored of the regular photos too. It was funny because we said we wanted silly pictures but he started staging us and Mike said "no like this" and we did the hubby on my head shot. After that Mike strangled me and people walking passed were laughing and it was game on for the photographer. The photographer had me sneak behind Mike for the "Shock and Awe" photo. Then he had be go down on one knee to propose for "Marry me babe". I like that one because you can see my shawl I got in Spain. Mike really impressed the photographer because he is so expressive. There was another where we both look scared of each other. But they are $25 per picture and my double chin was showing so we left that one behind. In the end the photographer was laughing and having fun with it.

I think that maybe the first time he got to do sometime so different on formal night. He was nervous he would get in trouble. Mike told him we asked for this plus we will probably buy these pictures. Sure enough 5 poses and we bought 4 of them. That is the most formal night pictures we have purchased. He took some good pictures. I also finally find the mix of foundation makeup that looks best on me. I have on a foundation with a shimmer product over that really helps my skin look dewy and younger. I love that stuff it picks up the light for the camera nicely. Before I was using a foundation with no shimmer product the foundation was to light and I looked like a zombie in all my shots. Not really that look I was going for.

[SIZE=3]Sure the foundation is [SIZE=3]Palladio Foundation Tube the color is Honey. The shimmer is Femme Couture Get Radiant Complexion Enhancer. I got them both at Sally's Beauty supply. I'm not sure where else they are available. Palladio also makes so cute eyeshadow four pack that I enjoy. The Femme Couture Get Radiant Complexion can be mixed in with the foundation or lightly blended in after the foundation is applied. That have a power version but I have the liquid version in the tube see the picture below. I stopped lining below my eyes because the eyeliner under my eyes was making them look smaller so I only line above to open the eye more. I hope that helps.
Shimmer

Foundation

Eyeshadow

I can't even tell you how impressed I was by those pictures. Since I had the pleasure of meeting you and your Hubby, I can say that those pics bring out the your looks and what fun people you two are.

The cat will be excited to hear about your vote.

Who am I kidding cats don't get excited. The cat will show disdain for your vote.

We enjoyed meeting you and Ms. TM. You were so kind and welcoming. You have a beautiful home, thank you for being such warm and wonderful hosts. I love the photo album your wife made us.

I do love the shimmer product it adds something to the makeup that I feel makes my skin look younger. Plus it doesn't feel heavy. I put some on my eyelids before applying my eyeshadow and it acts as a primer for the power. Not to turn this thread into a make up class. But it took me a long while to get the right mix of face products. I have many jars of expensive makeup that just didn't work. So annoying.

Your hubby does know if you hire a high profile divorce attorney (Gloria A.), a certain pic could be construed and used against him

I like them all..it is rare to see a couple on a cruise actually enjoy each other's company..preserve them for your 50th anniversary cruise

Hey the strangle hold was his idea. I can up with hubby on my head.

I hope we do see the 50th anniversary cruise. I wonder which ship we will be on. Maybe the Bengay of the Seas, Carnival Geritol, and perhaps the Arthritic Princess. My guess Keith Richards will be playing a concert in the main theater.
